Bangkok Foodie: Mr Jones’ Orphanage, Siam Center
The new Siam Center is a great new place to discover cute café and restaurant. After Let them Eat Cake, let’s talk about another key player in this mall: Mr Jones’ Orphanage.
How does it look like?
Mr Jones’ Orphanage looks as it sounds. The décor is made for the lost children from Peter Pan or the eager and excited adventurer of the Polar Express. As you step in on the premises, you enter another world, filled with teddy bears and sugar rushes.
How do they treat you?
The queue might be long but the staff is really helpful and friendly. They also speak perfect English. But as you sit in your little booth, the train station set up and the low ceilings make it difficult to draw the waiters’ attention.
How is the food?
Cakes and milkshakes! Your inner child will be please with the diverse and delicious sweets, both yummy and beautiful. The portions are generous so don’t expect be strict with your diet. And get the best of the “childish” environment, and get playful with your menu selection. The names will certainly make you smile.
The prices are a bit high but the quality of the food as well as the generous plates justifies them. Count 120-130 bahts for a slice and around 90 bahts for a drink.
Let’s be nice to our mom and bring her to spend a sweet time together! Bring your kids or little cousins, they will appreciate it as much as a trip to Disneyland. As for the hipsters, they will be ready to Instragram the bejesus out of the place!
